and i think we need to talk about paul ryan. the big headline is on cliff ryan faces two paths, will he stick to ideological purity or compromise to get a deal. how influential is he? >> we haven't heard much from paul ryan. i was more intrigued with eric cantor, so often the thorn in the side for speaker boehner is now saying he wants to get in there and do a deal. >> it was definitely a more conciliatory tone. he didn't give too many specifics but it was a different tone. >> in some accounts it was cantor's pressure in leaving conservative house members against boehner a bit and that first time around that helps settle things a little bit. i thought cantor was saying publicly was the big tale and paul ryan i haven't heard much from yet. >> and the other people trying to get in are the governors especially the delaware governor jack markell on a conference call with joe biden and a dozen mayors went to washington, d.c. to lobby lawmakers. are states more scared of going off the fiscal cliff? >> sure. state budgets would be impacted dramatically and very bad for them. governors are very
during the 2012 election, running mate paul ryan, as you know, said urban voters gave the president the big margin to win. the critics are saying this is about questioning the democratic get out the vote efforts and mirntds. is it? >> no. when you look at the numbers, that's not really the reason they lost the election. i think they lost the election for two reasons. one, because they were out of step with the majority of american people and two because some of the positions were wrong and people disagreed with them. the reason hispanic voters didn't vote for republicans by a huge margin was because they disagreed with their position. the reason young people did not vote for republicans by a big margin was they disagreed with a lot of their social issue positions on gay and lesbian issues. and so the republicans faced the reality that they're going to have to listen to the american people and change some of their substantive policy positions if they're going to attract these voters. >> you know, j.p., they also lost some largely world battleground states with majorities like new ham
of chris christie, paul ryan, marco rubio, ted cruz, susana martinez. it feels really dark today, but there is a bright side for republicans. and we're going to have some great faces moving forward. >> the dark ages of the republicans in '64 meant they weren't going to win another presidential election until 1968. four years later. i mean these things do have a way of turning the democrats. >> and 2016 will be a changed election of course. i think we're going to have a little bit of a break until then, but what a fascinating race on both sides. democrats and republicans. but i think in terms of who won the election or not, better campaigns -- >> when is the better campaign lost in a presidential? right. i mean, nobody wants to fully admit it. i know. >> but bad winning in fairness you become the better candidate. >> bush won, i guess. >> when you lose it's always the finger pointing. but i would say tonight republican friends having been there in january of 2005, i've got a book of talking points i'll send you. same question. who's the leader of the party, what do you stand for.

, to say, paul ryan is going forth a solution, we'll gather votes for it. i guarantee you'll get the democratic substitute. >> what do you think about that congressman? >> i think the house is republican controlled, a consequence of redistricting. and it was the superpacs that were very engtive in some house races. the fact of the matter is, we gained and there still six out there to be decided. we could gain more. i think at the house level, for the house to continue the role its played for two years is bad advice. the issue the famous statement, what i mean by compromise, i think cantor said, we have to agree with us. that's gone now. the president has a pull pit that he can take to the public on these issues and increase pressure on congress. >> lot of other issues on the docket. whether it's in the lame duck or coming up in the new session of congress, gingrich also talked about the need for the republican party to come to grips with immigration after mitt romney's poor performance among latino voters. he got less than 30%. do you think republicans will be more open to passin

a split and one of the interesting ways you can follow it has to do with what -- john boehner versus paul ryan. boehner is pushing for conference shame, republican congresswoman rogers while ryan is pushing tom price who used to run the conservative caucus in the house. if most of the caucus is getting behind them then it's a sign they'll dig in their heels. if they're going with boehner, it's a sign they'll deal. >> i want to bring in a democrat on both the armed services committee and select committee on intelligence and the fiscal cliff if i might. do you think the republicans will come to play? >> i believe that they will. it's my hope that everyone has gotten the message loud and clear that the american people expect us to compromise, democrats and republicans coming together to solve the fiscal cliff issue but in a balanced way and that is certainly what president obama has campaigned on protecting a strong middle class, allowing the tax cuts to expire above $250,000, but we can't be afraid to compromise but we can do that without compromising our principles. >> is part of this deal
, and that is paul ryan. obviously, the budget guy on the republican side. if he's looking at his political future, is it smarter to be a deal maker or hard line conservative? >> well, see, the problem is it's sort of both. he wants to run another republican primary. he needs to be seen as sticking to his principles. he really doesn't have an incentive to move off particularly the main line principle of not raising taxes. in a republican primary, that can be a big problem, which ironically is the same problem for john boehner. he wants to retain his speakership. if he makes a deal before january 3rd, that's a question for him, too. ryan has a double incentive. on the one hand, the new republican party, quote, unquote, you would think being a deal maker makes more sense but there's still a primary and the base of the republican party hasn't moved. >> congressman tom cole is a republican from oklahoma. good morning. >> good to be with you. >> we said this is a numbers game. here's one bottom line -- 90% of americans will see their bills go up if you don't reach a deal. are republicans willing to com
equity. you have to ask beyond paul ryan, who received quite a bit of coverage regarding his ill-fitting suit or body fat. >> immediately sent him to the tailor to take in his suits. danny, is there a sense of why this is happening? is this just a general societal change? is it because there are more women out there? is there a bit of a hillary clinton effect? what's going on, do you think? >> i think there's some truth in all of that. a couple things we point out in the research is attitudes about women's place in society have been changing over the last few decades to the point now that relatively few americans, for example, view women as less emotionally suited for politics than they used to. but another big part of the change is simply the changes in the party polarization. that is, today in american politics is parties have ideologically moved apart. as voters have become more concerned with issues and ideological differences between the parties that has made the gender running for office less salient. for most voters it doesn't matter if it's a man or a woman. what matters
the chairmanship. so they made an exception in the case of paul ryan, but not the one woman who chaired a committee. >> this is just dumb. it speaks to their judgment and it speaks to what michael said, which is where their real heart is. it's funny, the ethics committee and administration committee are really important committees. but it is kind of easy to characterize it as saying they want one to be a mom and the other to be the house keeper. it's sort of speaks to the issue -- by the way, now you're going to do exactly what michael says you don't want to to. you didn't put a woman in a role just because she's a woman so you can check the box. there are qualified women who ought to have those roles based on their capacity and talent. >> thank you both very much. and you can watch this segment and in fact the rest of jansing and company on our new and improved home on the web. we are unveiling a revamped page today. bolder headlines, the latest news and best video from jansing and company and also a space for your comments. tell us what you think. >>> also making news this morning, former cia chi
